    ^^ Did you try to uninstall it from Programs and Featured?

  • Hy,VG can you help me to find out and custom lock screen for windows 7.............

    ^^ Windows 7 doesnt have Lock Screen but you can customize Login Screen to look-like Windows 8 Lock Screen by changing its background image, etc.

  • vg, is there a way to customize the Windows 8 login (not lock) screen? thnx in advance if answered!

  • Yeah,but i have seen many login screens at Devinart .Can you tell me how to apply those

  • I found this (I forget where) on the web.

    Setting login background:

    Open Group Policy Editor
    win + R "gpedit.msc"
    Navigate to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon
    Always use custom login background.” Double-click it and set it to Enabled.
    Setting An Image:
    Your image file must be less than 256 KB in size. It’s also a good idea to use an image file that matches the resolution
    of your monitor, so it won’t look stretched.

    Windows looks for the custom logon screen background image in the following directory:


    By default, the info and backgrounds folders don’t exist. Navigate to the C:\Windows\System32\oobe folder and create them
    yourself by right-clicking inside the folder, pointing to New, and selecting New Folder.
    Copy your desired background image to the backgrounds folder and name it backgroundDefault.jpg.
    The change will take effect immediately – no system reboot required. The first time you log out or lock your screen
    (try the WinKey-L keyboard shortcut), you’ll see your new background.

  • Is there any "advanced" version of this app?
    I wanted this "advanced" version to easily & safely change the text and button set of win7 login screen.
    I don't want to do replacing the system files manually as I am afraid of it because I had tried to replace authui.dll file with new ones and windows 7 was not booting, so I had to chose restore to out of box state (factory restore), which deleted every thing & then installs windows.

    Thanks in advance.
